Santos Returns To Victory Lane

Wins Whelen Modified's Thompson 125 With Last-Lap Pass

THOMPSON, Conn. -- It had been long enough since Bobby Santos had been to Victory Lane that he was wondering whether he would ever get back.

It only took one lap Wednesday night at Thompson Speedway Motorsport Park to erase all that.

Santos drove the No. 44 Tinio Corp./Dan Kelley/Curb Records Chevrolet by Max Zachem on the white-flag lap to win the Thompson 125. It was the only lap Santos led on a night where he pitted multiple times early in the event due to a tire issue.

"There was a lot of doubting ourselves," Santos said. "We all know we can win. We won as this team before. We just need a little momentum and we can start winning races again." more results
